Toms shoots a 62, leads Colonial by seven strokes

FORT WORTH, Texas — David Toms shot his second straight 8-under 62 at Colonial on Friday, matching the PGA Tour record for the first 36 holes to open a seven-stroke lead.

Coming off a playoff loss Sunday to K.J. Choi in The Players Championship, the 44-year-old Toms tied the mark of 124 set by Pat Perez in the 2009 Bob Hope Classic. Perez had rounds of 61 and 63.

Unaffected by a 21/2;-hour weather delay that interrupted his round, Toms had four birdies on the eight holes he completed after play resumed. For the second day in a row, Toms carded 31s on both nines.

Rangers' Boogaard died of alcohol, oxycodone mix

MINNEAPOLIS — The death of Rangers enforcer Derek Boogaard was an accident, due to a toxic mix of alcohol and the powerful painkiller oxycodone.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner announced Boogaard's cause of death Friday, saying it was unclear exactly when the 28-year-old died. Boogaard was found dead in his Minneapolis apartment last Friday, five months after he sustained a season-ending concussion with the New York Rangers.

The medical examiner said no private data on Boogaard would be released, but a statement his family issued through the National Hockey League Players' Association indicated the 6-foot-7 Boogaard had been struggling with pain and addiction.
